Simple Ball mill


I created a simple working ball mill out of an old R/C car and it works fine until I can get a better one.

Glad to hear it. Can you post pictures and explain your design? People after this post will probably inform you that there are already threads on this and to post in them instead of creating a basically empty thread about it.

Nice but can we get more information about it?

Edit:

smaerd was faster than me.

I never asked for this.

Basicaly what I did is I inverted the toy car and put up edges so the container wouldn't slide and taped peices of paper on to reduce friction. It is a work in progress. It works but it isn't pretty. I'll try to post pictures later.
Edit: The paper is slowing it down so I removed it.

Here is a picture of my simple ball mill being used to coat stars in black powder. I have other containers but I'm not grinding anything so a mason jar is fine. I find I can adjust the speed by adjusting the angle of the mill.
